SPRING, 1966 


Dr. Dewey Barich (33), presi- 
dent of Detroit Institute of Tech- 
nology, will be the speaker at 
commencement exercises June 4. 
The ceremonies have been set ten- 
tatively for 10 a.m., in the health 
and physical education center au- 

Two hundred forty-one persons 
are candidates for bachelor of 
science degrees, and 62 are candi- 
dates for master of science degrees 
to be awarded at that time. In ad- 
dition, 80 persons received degrees 
at January commencement, and 
another 130, approximately, will be 
candidates for degrees in August, 
bringing to over 500 the number 
who will have received Stout 
degrees in 1966. 

President William J. Micheels 
will confer degrees at the June 
exercises, and Robert L. Pierce of 
Menomonie, member of the board 
of regents, is expected to present 
the diplomas. 

Dr. Barich received his bachelor 
of science degree from Stout in 
1933 and subsequently received a 
master of arts degree from the 
University of Michigan and a doc- 
tor of education degree from 
Wayne State university in Detroit. 

After his graduation from Stout, 
Dr. Barich taught at Flint, Mich., 
and then successively at Trenton, 
Mich., and Central Michigan col- 
lege before being named superin- 
tendent in the Michigan depart- 
ment of public instruction. He next 
became chairman of industrial-tech- 
nical education at Kent State uni- 
versity in Ohio. 

Dr. Barich served a hitch as an 
engineering officer in the Navy and 



a seven-year term in managerial 
positions with Ford Motor Co., be- 
fore being named president of DIT 
in 1958. 

In addition to the conferring of 
degrees and Dr. Barieh's address, 
a third highlight of commencement 
exercises will be the awarding of 
the alumni distinguished service 
awards to two persons. 


Members of the class of 1916 
will hold a reunion on the campus 
during the coming summer. The 
exact date and other details are 
still pending, but Mrs. Elizabeth 
Cole Talbot of Coon Rapids, Minn., 
is organizing the gathering. 

Alumni records show that 266 
persons were in the 1916 gradua- 

ting class, including ex-president 
Verne C. Fryklund. The alumni 
office has addresses for 69 of these 

As soon as further details about 
the reunion are known, they will 
be distributed to the graduates of 
that year. 


The first issue of the Stout 
Alumnus which was published in 
February drew many favorable 
comments from alumni, and some 
300 persons returned the back page 
which asked for up-to-date informa- 
tin about graduates. 

The information pages which 
were returned will be invaluable to 
the alumni office in the never-end- 
ing job of compiling statistics on 
alumni and keeping addresses cur- 
rent. The information will be use- 
ful also to the Stout State Univer- 
sity Foundation, Inc., when its 
representatives approach business 
and industrial firms to ask for 
funds. One of the first questions 
asked by prospective donors is 
"What are your alumni doing for 
business and industry?" Those in- 
formation sheets will help us supply 
the answer. 

If your copy of tire winter Alum- 
nus is still kicking around the house 
with the back page still on, please 
take a moment to fill it out and re- 
turn it to the alumni office. 

The Alumnus goes to all alum- 
ni and ex-students, not just dues- 
paying members of the alumni 
association. The alumni association 

Page 2 

is anxious to have all graduates and 
ex-students become bona fide mem- 
bers. Dues notices will be sent soon. 
Yearly membership dues are $2. A 
life membership is $30.

utive director of the foundation, 

at the March 3, kickoff of the fac- 
ulty-staff division of the drive. 

Dr. Furlong also announced that 
$22,000 in advance gifts and

the foundation was solicited in 
March, under the direction of Miss 
Henriette Quilling (31), vice-pres- 
ident of the foundation, 

Later in the year, a concerted 
drive to obtain funds from in- 
dustries, corporations and founda-

Some Firms Will 
Match Contributions 

The Stout Alumnus 

Many United States corporations 
have begun programs in which they 
match contributions their env 
ployees make to colleges and uni- 

If, for instance, you work for a 
company that has this type of 
program and you give $100 to the 
Stout State University Foundation, 
your employer will also give $100. 

Obviously these matching pro- 
grams can mean much to a college 
or university. When you feel that 
you can contribute to the Stout 
State University Foundation, 
please ask your employer whether 
your company does have a policy 
of matching gifts. Or, if you pre- 
fer, write to the alumni office at 
Stout and ask for a list of corpora- 
tions and companies that have 
matching programs.

The Hustlin* Bluedevils 


Stout's basketball Bluedevils, 
refusing to be outdone by the foot- 
ball Devils, walked away with the 
Wisconsin State University confer- 
ence cage championship. 

Coaches Dwain 
Mintz, Joe Jax, 
Bob Hayhurst 
(65) and Ralph 
Marshall and the 
team posted a 15- 
won, one-lost rec- 
ord and clinched 
mintz the title with a 71 

to 61 conquest of Platteville. 

The Devils' only league loss came 
in a home game with Stevens Point 
after the Pointers had been beaten 
in a previous contest on their own 

It was the first conference cham- 
pionship for Stout since Ray John- 
son's 1942 and 1943 teams won 
northern division conference 

crowns . In those years, the Devils 
also went on to the National Asso- 
ciation of Intercollegiate Athletics 
tournament in Kansas City. 

This year's club almost made it 
to the Kansas City classic, but lost 
out to Lakeland college of Sheboy- 
gan in a playoff game. The loss to 
Lakeland made the final season 
mark 19 won and 4 lost. The Devils 
lost two games in a Christmas 
tournament in St. Cloud, Minn., in 
addition to the Lakeland and Ste- 
vens Point reverses. 

It was a conference championship 
in his fourth season at Stout for 
Coach Mintz, who came here in 
1962 from Mankato, Minn., where 
he coached the Bethany junior col- 
lege cagers to national prominence. 

This year's team played a control- 
led style of ball which, more often 
than not, intimidated opponents 
into making game-losing mistakes 
at crucial moments. The club 
featured balanced scoring with all 
five starters — Bill Ozga and Jerry 
Kissman, forwards; Jim Conley, 

center; and Mike Thompson and 
Willie White, guards — usually 
scoring in double figures. 

Thompson, from Danville, 111., 
was the team's leading scorer, and 
Kissman, a 6-6, 240-pounder from 
New Buffalo, Mich., led the quint 
in rebounding. As a team, Stout 
excelled in defense and was the 
state's top small college team in 
that category. 

Mintz Honored 

The sting of the Lakeland defeat 
which destroyed the Devils' hopes 
for a tourney appearance was 
somewhat salved by the naming of 
Coach Mintz as NAIA district 14 
(Wisconsin) and area 4 coach of 
the year. 

As a consequence, Mintz joins 
Coach Max Sparger in the front 
rank of Wisconsin college coaches. 
Sparger received the district coach 
of the year award last fall after 
his gridders topped the conference 
with a perfect 6-0 record. 

Pictured here are Stout's 1966 Wisconsin State University son, Tom Fortney, Carl Wymer, Eddie Ellis, and Assistant Coach

Wrestlers, Gymnasts 
Win Laurels, Too 

Though basketball and football 
got most of the year's headlines, 
Stout athletes in so-called minor 
sports excelled also. 

The Avrestling team was named 
conference champion by default 
when the Superior team was dis- 
qualified for having ineligible men 
on the team. Stout had finished se- 
cond in the conference meet. This 
was Coach Sten Pierce's first year 
with the team. 

Widi the enthusiasm of Coach 
John Zuerlein the moving force, 
gymnastics has won an honored 
spot in competitive athletics at 
Stout. This year the gymnasts were 
runnerup in the conference but de- 
feated conference champion La 
Crosse in a duel meet. 

Swimming became a competitive 
sport at Stout this year for the 
first time in many years. The swim- 
mers competed in several meets 
under the tutelage of Coach Den- 
nis Raarup.
